What Happened To Rachel?

After a series of cruelty towards innocent people including two kids, Rachel was devastated. Likewise, she got hold of Mossad’s cruel intentions. It was to use foreigners for their work and difficult missions and to kill them after the mission completes. Both Thomas and Rachel were foreigners who had nothing to do with the fight between Israel and Iran. Hence, Rachel confronted Thomas and asked for his cooperation. Fortunately, he believed her. However, Rachel completed her mission by handing over Farhad to the agency. Sadly, she was forced to flee soon after Mossad discovered her pregnancy.

All these things were in the past. After the phone call, Thomas was again hired by the agency to catch Rachel and end her. It seemed like a cruel end that Rachel had first thought of. Fortunately, working under Mossad for a long time gave her enough confidence to deal with these situations. Hence, Rachel informed Thomas about her plan. She transferred every detail about her mission to someone in Switzerland. If anyone tried to kill her, that information was set to release on the internet.

Having a soft corner for Farhad, Rachel wanted his freedom as a negotiating deal with Mossad. However, Mossad wanted to kill the deserter. In the final moments of The Operative, Thomas becomes a diversion between Rachel and Mossad’s agents who were sent to kill her. Luckily, Rachel elopes in the crowded subway, away from Thomas and Mossad’s agents. No one knows where she went and how. Rachel just disappears forever.
